The fates have decided, at long last, that Guatemala has won round one of the epic battle, ¨Guatemala versus Dillon.¨ At first, Dillon was in the lead, chomping with impunity on vegan street food, at road-side taquería stands, on deep fried empanadas, chocobananos and chocopiña, and anything else which struck one´s fancy. Thinking, all the while, I´m vegan, so I´m safe, no meat-borne grossness will befall me. Then, late night Saturday, all of that free eating caught up.

The Great Guatemalan Stomach Virus of 2008! Nooooooo! Envision a Hitchcock-ian scene, only it´s me, Dillon, sitting unknowingly on the park bench, munching on a little snack, while one-by-one, a giant cloud of stomach viruses collect on the buildings behind me.

The good news is that I ate solid food today! Crackers, tortillas, about a tablespoon of beans, and some rice. Oh, and a banana. Probably shouldn´t have eaten so much, so fast, but I was so tired of feeling tired and woozy and weak from malnutrition and dehydration.
